A recipe and a basketball game

So after the Beans and Rice post I thought it would be good to post a yummy comfort food recipe. I did a little Cooking Co-op cooking today so this recipe was sitting out and it's one that all the kids eat as well. Here ya go...Enjoy!

Ham Balls

1 1/2 pounds ground ham
1 pound ground pork
2 cups bread crumbs
2 beaten eggs
3/4 cup milk

Mix all together in a big bowl (just mush it together with your hands...messy!). Form it into baseball-size balls. Spray a 9x13 casserole with non-stick spray, put the balls in the pan, then make a sauce of the following:

1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup vinegar
1 tsp. dry mustard

Whisk together until sugar is dissolved then pour over ham balls into the casserole. Bake uncovered for 2 hours at 275 degrees, basting occasionally with the sauce. If they start to get too brown on top, cover with foil for remaining half hour or so. This should make 12 good size ham balls. YUMMY!

Max and The Sooners had their final basketball game of the season and boy was it a good one! They finally won!! Not that we care, or that that's what it's about by any means, but truly, I think that one win made the season for Max. And I'm pretty sure they were dead last anyway so it didn't change anything, but to win a game was very exciting. Max puts forth such an awesome effort every game, and he really is a great encourager for his teammates. We were very proud of him, the Sooners, and oh so thankful for his coach, Steph, who put in the time to teach them with grace and patience!

Just gave our final nebulizer treatment for the evening for the Tater Bug (we may be a long night!) but 'tis the season, as everyone who has the pleasure of being the proud owner of a nebulizer knows, right? Started with a little cough on Saturday morning, right after I had finished saying how healthy our kids had been this winter on Friday night. I should have known better than to open my mouth about that one! Here's to a quiet night. Love to you all~
